And I Quote


"I was bred to the law; that gave me a view of the dark side of humanity. Then I read poetry to qualify it with a gaze upon its bright side; and between the two extremes I have contrived through life to draw the due medium."

Thomas Jefferson, as quoted in Thomas Jefferson and the Rhetoric of Virtue

VERY profound. May I ask what brought you to this quote???

Wendy, the event that has brought me to this quote would take an hour to explain. Let's just say, I've been gazing upon poetry a fair deal lately.

i'm confused and it's too late for such deep thoughts. A penny for yours, though.
